that hillary clinton is publicly supporting same-sex marriage. of course, her husband, former president bill clinton, who signed that into law say that d.o.m.a. should be overturned and senator rob portman is citing his familiarity with this issue, his son is gay. how do you think this is going to play out in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to
secretary of state hillary clinton getting on the right side of history in her view and the view of her party coming up with a video changing the clinton view on doma and in the republican party, we're hearing from all across the spectrum that regardless of what the supreme court does the party needs to have a more libertarian view on this. republicans are telling us it would be a huge help with fund-raising especially in the big states of new york, california, and florida. if the republican party were to be more open on this. and people are telling us that investors don't want to invest what they think losing national elections which could continue to be the case if republicans stay very narrow on this issue. republicans i talked to even extremely conservative ones, very christian conservative republicans are telling me the polls they have seen in the last couple of weeks have been eye-opening, showing not only that young people very heavily in favor of gay marriage, but if you extrapolate that a little bit in just 10, 20 years, this is going to be 70/30 issue that republicans are goin

taxpayers. in 1990's president clinton worked with a republican congress to grow the economy and to restrain spending. in the 1990's, the balanced budget agreement actually resulted in a much faster balanced budget than anybody anticipated. balancing the budget was a major accomplishment for republicans in the 1990's, and also part of president clinton's legacy. i would hope that president obama would learn from that. the american people overwhelmingly support balancing our budgets. and the budget the senate democrats are considering never balances, ever. that means more debt, fewer jobs, and, frankly, much higher taxes from the american people. we certainly hope the president will change his mind and submit a plan that actually balances the budget. let's be clear, the democrats in this town who reject the goal of balancing the budget i think were out of step of where the american people are. the american people know you can't continue to spend money you don't have. i didn't come here for a fancy title or big office. i want to hand my kids and grandkids the same shot at the american dream th

that is to have the kind of balance that we had, frankly, at the end of president clinton's two terms in office where you had a balance between the investment of the revenues you're putting into the system and, secondly, that you had the spending levels which we have to bring down to get to that level. so that kind of balance is the only way to go. we have to do two things very well, create jobs and move the economy forward, that's first. that's first priority. and, second, make agreements that will lead to spending cuts over the next ten years and have those cuts go into effect in a couple of years, not right away. that's why we deal with the sequestration in our budget so we can take that, reverse that, and not have the adverse impact that we're already beginning to see. >> senator bob casey, improse sif, sir, given your all-nighter. i applaud you. really good. i don't know how you could stay awake and sound great and make good sense so thank you so much. >>> frustration and anger in chicago after the city announces plans to close more than 50 public schools. principals, teachers, families al

weapons ban passed in 1994 and that required a lot of arm twisting on the part of president bill clinton on members of his own part for exactly this reason, because there are a lot of democrats and in a lot of red states with very big gun cultures and significant opposition to gun control measures that clinton really had to work every bit of political capital he had to get that done in '94. barack obama has shown, even though they gave all of these remarks in the state of the union address and elsewhere, megyn, that he's just not willing to pick up that fight and die on this particular hill. harry reid looks at his caucus and says, look, i've got 55 democrats in my senate caucus here. i can't get 40 votes for this. i've got a number of very vulnerable democrats coming up in red states like alaska, arkansas, louisiana. >> megyn: north carolina. >> west virginia, north carolina, montana for example, i don't want them dying on this hill and i'm going to strip it out. have it voted on, they will vet a vote, and on an amendment and that means the death of the ban. >> megyn: even dianne feinst
clinton did with aid to families with dependent children. so you have this reform of entitlements, reform of the various welfare programs and tax reform taking the top rate on individuals to 25%, the bottom rate to 10%. so you have two rates, 10 and 25. now we go from 10 up to 44 these days. and the corporate rate, which is 35% right now, the average in europe is 25. so when we compete internationally, we've hobbled ourselves because we tax our companies, our manufacturing companies more harshly than they do theirs. he wants to take that rate to 25 so it's close, so it's at the european average. now, i'd rather be better than europe. the canadians are about 17%. i prefer the canadian rate than the european average. so the republicans and democrats in their two budgets really show who they are. now, there's also a third budget which is the progressive budget which is the more liberal democrats, and they do massive new taxes on top of the ones i discussed plus massive new spending. so you have a sense of there's some democrats who want to go even further into big government than patty murra
is expected of me? i will never forget a trip i took to -- right after clinton had seen president assad in geneva. prior to the trip, the prime minister conveyed to us what it was he wanted out of it. he produced what he wanted to see come out of it. i walked into the meeting feeling highly confident. we did what you asked. the first thing he did was immediately devalue what i came with. why did he do it? because he knew i was coming to ask something of him. if you go into these meetings in the expectations are very high, each reader is suddenly worried about what you are going to ask of them. when are low, you are in a better position to have a serious conversation and can explore the possibilities. maybe the way you frame that conversation is by talking about, what are the consequences of not getting anything done? with each side. if they are severe enough, how can we think together about what it is that could be possible? where could there be some points of commonality we could build on? i expect you will have, there will end up being serious conversations in private that are much mo

months. you can see the administration is not cooperating. secretary clinton, did she even go visit the wounded out at bethesda? you need subpoena power really to protect the federal employees. their careers are on the line. if you're 50 years old, you don't want to get across the bricks with your boss and lose your jobs with maybe kids in college, have a mortgage. so you will have to have a select committee. you will have to subpoena them. this can be done in private. otherwise the american people will never know. bill: let me cut right to this now. you mentioned cover-up. what are they trying to cover up? >> well i think that is what the select committee will find out. what happened that day? why did it take so long? are we not interviewing? why did secretary clinton when she talked about the four people who were heroes who died, why did she not mention those who were wounded? we have an obligation to them. we should honor them. we should thank them. there are more questions out here than there are answers. bill: another question for you then. the house committee has subpoena powe
on almost a daily basis. first, secretary hillary clinton helped to spearhead the reforms bat created a coherent syrian opposition council. now you have the secretary kerry, who is deeply involved in that effort as well. we are providing not just advice, but training and capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and be able to provide direct services for people inside of syria, including the relief efforts that obviously we are seen here in jordan, but there is a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting maybe is, why haven't we simply gone in militarily? and you know, i think it is fair to say that the united states oftentimes it finds itself in situations where if it goes in militarily, and if it does not, then people say, why are you doing something militarily? and you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contribute to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multilateral context, an international context,

where this debate is taking place between obama, hillary clinton, and i'm pumping breast milk. i just had my kid 20 minutes before i'm going on. i'm trying to get my head in the game. think about the questions i wanted to ask. breast milk is flying everywhere over my notes. how do you lean in at that moment? what is the equivalent of that for wolf blitzer or joe scarborough? it is a moment where you say, i can't do this! and i don't care what advice is in a self-help book that sort of gets me over that hump! >> you were doing it, though. >> you've had moments like that? >> no, i haven't. it is so much easier for men because looking at my mom or my aunts or other women in my life that have worked and been juggling everything, it's just so hard, because, you know, you go all in one way and you feel like you're missing out. you go in all in the other warks you feel like you're missing out. it's a constant balancing act and most women i know -- >> as campbell says, life is messy. but i think the point of sheryl's book is asking the question why aren't there more senior women in business,
, under reagan, and h.w. bush, and clinton. the difference is probably 1 million jobs relative to what is done in the past and now. we're missing one million government jobs retive to the histical norm -- >> rose: what's the difference? why is that true? >> it's true for two reasons. one is that states and locates almost inevitability have to cut back when time is tough. they lose tax revenues. they are mandated legally to run a balanced budget so at the time same time consumers and red soxes pull back the government is. in washington, starting in 2011, with the negotiations between the house republicans and the white houses, the house republicans have insisted on big cuts and have woniguts and that's why we have austerity and will have more this year. >> rose: if the fed wanted to reduce unemployment from seven to whatever it is-- seven. could they do that? do they have the tools to do that? >> no. i don't think so. they're down to incremental policies. i think they know that. ben bernanke and janet yellen, and otheres, are constantly arguing-- correct, i think-- but they tend to put
administrations and a former obama adviser as well. so clinton bush and obama, all of the above. first of all to you, jeffrey, your reaction to the speech today. you were there in the hall, the feeling from the young people. admittedly, more supportive of obama perhaps than the overall israeli public. >> maybe, but i mean many university students do lean right. most amazing thing about it for me was a huge ovation when president obama called for the creation of a palestinian state in different iterations and i was thinking when i was in there, if he had given that speak at an apec convention in washington, he might have been booed. i'm trying to imagine what arab audiences across the muslim world were thinking when they saw israelis cheer obama for calling, for palestinian state. it was kind of a brief moment of possibility there. >> and dennis, you spent so many years trying to make this happen, do you think in retrospect, that the administration got off on the wrong foot with prime minister netenyahu, the cairo speech, not following it up perhaps and calling for the settlement freeze in yea
secretary hillary clinton helped to spearhead the efforts that formed a coherent syrian opposition council. now you've got secretary kerry who's deeply involved in that effort as well. and we are providing not just words but resources, training, capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and to be able to provide direct services to people inside of syria including the kinds of relief efforts that obviously we're seeing here in jordan, but there are a whole bunch of people who are internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarily. and i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in militarily, then it's criticized for going in militarily. and if it doesn't go in militarily, then people say why aren't you doing something militarily. and, you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multilateral context a
. and that's an area where we have been involved on almost a daily basis. first second hillary clinton helped to pespearhead the effor to form a coherent syrian opposition council. now you've got secretary kerry, deeply involved in that effort as well. we're providing not just advice, not just words, but we're providing resources, training, capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and to be able to provide direct services to people inside of syria, including the kinds of relief efforts that obviously we're seeing here in jordan. but there are a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarymilit. i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in situation where it goes in militarily then it's criticized for going in militarily and if it doesn't go in militarily. then people say why aren't you doing something militarily? and my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the
the defense of marriage act, known as doma, first passed by congress and signed by president clinton in 1996, is being challenged at the supreme court. >> whether or not congress can pass a law that treats same-sex couples who are already married under the laws of their state different from opposite sex couples. >> reporter: congress has as much right as the state to make et cetera own definition of marriage. >> it is for because congress said it was for. i mean, we sent our elected representatives to washington, d.c., and they chose to say marriage is one man and one woman for purposes of federal law. >> reporter: conservatives say that the founding fathers never contemplated gay marriage. >> because it is clearly not what anyone understood marriage at the time of the framing of the constitution. >> reporter: still same-sex families pay taxes and don't get the same benefit. and the issue with doma gets complicated if they have children who are also excluded from benefits. >> when we -- we have kids, i would like them to be born in a post-doma united states. >> reporter: california is one of
passed gay marriage in 1993, president clinton decided to make sure that each state -- again, larry, states' rights -- that washington intervene and say states have the right to not recognize marriages if the people in that state don't believe in that. this has always been a fact. the other thing, "the wall street journal" made a very important point in their very strong editorial today, saying the supreme court should really hold against these two cases. they said, how can you tell millions of americans that they're deeply held moral beliefs are bigotry. >> do we want a legal, judicial decision here, or do you want a political decision? >> right. zb we just got a political decision in the obama health care case, and roe v. wade was also a political decision, which they wanted the right, it was an incorrect decision. >> the right to marry is fundamental. the constitution of the supreme court has repeatedly recognized that. the idea that you can't compare that to loving versus virginia, kelly ann, is wrong because the issue is about marriage. the issue is about marriage, and the cour
? >> they've got a long memory but if hillary colin con couldn't negotiate this -- if hillary clinton couldn't negotiate this, i don't think john kerry will be able to deliver anything differently. that status of force agreement was critical. i think we should remember this when we are dabbling in whether or not to have a long-term presence and influence in afghanistan, the problem is iraq is that much more important. it is strategically more significant and we let it slip away. >>brian: after all that hard work and sacrifice. thanks so much. 17 after the hour. thanks for joining us this morning. >>> remember those shovel-ready projects? why are we now paying for a gas tax? fox business's charles payne is here telling us where that money is going. >> it was the ad no one was supposed to see. supposed to see. now ford is under fire. what's droid-recognition ? understanding you clearly... what is the capital of zimbabwe ? ... the first time you ask with the google voice search. the droid razr maxx hd by motorola. droid recognition. droid powerful. mommy's having a french fry. yes she is, yes s
clinton and exploded our nation's debt. now after a decade of reckless financial management, the majority is proposing another budget that is unserious as it is extreme. take for example the field of scientific research. more than 50% of our economic growth since world war ii can be attributed to the development and adoption of new technologies. yet the budget proposed drastic cuts to research at the national institutes of health, the national science foundation, the national err naughtics and space administration, among others. as -- err naughtics and space ad-- arow naughtics and space -- a; eronautics and space administration as aamong others. you cannot turn on and off research like a faucet. under the majority's budget that valuable research will be ended and it's important -- and these important discoveries will probably not be made in the united states. the majority wants to impose such cuts on top of the cuts contained in the sequester, even though this effects of the sequester are just beginning to be felt. for example, in the coming weeks, airport control towers will begin to cl
clinton? he came here four times as president. he was so deeply involved, we were both covering the white house in those days, in the camp david process and others, the israelis miss that, a guy who can draw the maps, president bush didn't get that involved. president obama hasn't gotten that involved. they're different people, personally and how they carry themselves politically and in their philosophies. the prime minister in cracking jokes when the president has landed is trying to say, i'm trying and now we'll see if the president is trying. >> we'll get back to jessica in a moment. tom foreman, this trip comes at a time when so many israelis feel increasingly vulnerable due in large part to the major political changes occurring in the region and their neighborhood. tom is taking a closer look at that region. what are you seeing, tom? >> john made references of being able to draw the map there. it is important to bear in mind the map here. look at where the president is visiting here, he's going to really a small part of a small area, but a very important part as you know, with stops
to president clinton. monica crowley radio talk show host. both are fox news contributors and welcome to both of you. tough, tough topic here. not yet confirmed. there are still fish shuns widespread, what to do if the red line is crossed publicly many times? it was not the first time. there was august of 2012. >> we've seen middle east dictators show no hesitation to use these chemical agents before. assad's own father used them. 40,000 syrians killed in hama. saddam hussein didn't hesitate to use chemical weapons against his own people and the iranian people. we know there is pattern in the middle east. the question is whether or not it actually happened here. when president obama talks about the red line being crossed, use of chemical agents if in fact that is proven would be the red line and i would believe provoke u.s. military intervention. bill: doug, what do you think?. >> i couldn't agree with monica more. let's be clear. this is the interest of the united states and our only stable democratic ally in the region, israel. israelis said, two ministers said yesterday they have definitiv
la renta. his fashions have been worn by first ladies, including nancy reagan, hillary clinton, and laura bush. when he was asked in mexico city over the weekend why michelle obama hasn't worn his work, he answered candidly, blaming himself for saying stupid things. >> a relation that started off poorly, well, i don't think will end any differently. >> reporter: in 2009, oscar de la renta criticized mrs. obama for wearing a cardigan when she went to buckingham palace, heeds on more criticism when she wore this dress for alexander mcqueen, a european designer for a state dinner. oscar de la renta did have high praise for the first lady, calling her an extraordinary woman and says she represents her country well. but just as quickly as he praised her, he also seemed to entangle himself in yards of controversy by suggesting the first lady wasn't quite the fashion trend setter everyone thinks, instead it's the everyday woman who sets the fashion tone. >> translator: i've found an anonymous woman walking down the street is a woman who influences fashion today, not a movie star, firs
. you might say the clinton and bush position of being close to israel. in the first term he wanted to create distance. he was kind of appealing to the arab countries and that's over. he's not saying-- he's kind of changed his position and the question, does he really mean it or is it just talk? >> we asked at the beginning what did president obama accomplish his goal? here is what the president said about what he intended to do in israel. listen. >> put yourself in their shoes. look at the world through their eyes. it's not fair that a palestinian child cannot grow he up he-- up in a state of their own. >> clayton: and the president said he wanted the opportunity to speak directly to the israeli people at a time when they're obviously dealing with some major, major problems as it relates to the palestinian people and syria, iran and others, did he accomplish his goal? >> i think he accomplished a the lot of it. he made himself seem friendlier to israel and kind of put the palestinian issue to the side. and because iran and syria are so much more important. he told the palestinians
